I Was There traces Alan Edwards’ career from the thriving punk scene of ’70s London, which inspired him to set up his own PR company, through his work with acts such as Blondie and the Rolling Stones, his collaboration with David Bowie over nearly four decades, work with Prince, Usher, his move into the pop world with the Spice Girls, and beyond music to the world of fashion and politics. Join him in conversation with one of the UK’s favourite DJ’s, Absolute Radio’s Claire Sturgess for fascinating observations about some of the most brilliant artists of the last 50 years, and enjoy a front-row seat to the rise of PR as a major force in British society.

This talk will be held on Zoom and all ticketholders will receive a link to view the morning of the event. The talk will also be recorded for ticketholders not able to join live.
